    I'm smoking ribs and I am about an 1.5 hours in. I noticed it was starting to rain/snow (which it wasn't suppose to do today) and without thinking slowly slid the smoker over so it would be under an overhang.
    I completely forgot about the liquid inside (I know don't ask kids are off today) and instantly heard a sizzling. 2 seconds later I noticed a lot of smoke so I opened the door. I looked inside where the chips go and noticed a small file. Still lots of smoke. I quickly unplugged the unit and sealed it to try and deprive the fire of oxygen. A minute or 2 later the fire was out.

    Here's the big question. Are these ribs salvageable or is it a loss? I fired the smoker back up and set it to the temp I want hoping for the best.

    any advice???
  2. You should be perfectly fine. As long as the smoker isn't damaged and still functioning, keep it rolling!

    It's working and the fire was contained to where the chips go.
    Hopefully it's safe!
